The Winnipeg Art Gallery is celebrating spring by taking a leaf from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Minneapolis Art Institute by staging an Art in Bloom contest
from April 20-23, 2017. Both American museums run contests in which floral designers attempt to recreate floral still lifes held in the museums' collections and now WAG is doing the same.
To help celebrate Art in Bloom 2017 the museum is exhibiting Nature Rearranged: A Century of Still life running from February
18 through into May. Some of the still lifes will be by Marc Chagall, Lionel Lemoine Fitzgerald, Ivan Eyre and Wanda Koop to name but a few.
